Death of former trainer Hindley

Jeremy Hindley, who trained around 700 winners in a 17-year career which ended in 1987, has died at the age of 69.

He had been suffering from motor neurone disease since 2001 and passed away at his home in Hermanus, South Africa.

The best horses he trained included Protection Racket, who won the Irish St Leger and the Ebor, The Go-Between, whose eight wins from 11 juvenile starts included the Cornwallis Stakes, the Doncaster Cup winner Crash Course, and Huntingdale, who took the Dewhurst.

The trainer’s 17-year career was one race short of ending on a winner as the last but one runner he saddled, Iran Scam, was successful at Newmarket.

When he gave up training Hindley leased Moulton Paddocks Stables, where he had been training for his final two years, to Arat Investments, an operation with which Sheikh Mohammed was closely connected.

Hindley was twice married and leaves three daughters.
